Facts about the code:

  • Keeps us accountable

Grizzlies men’s indoor soccer advance to provincials

Published on March 2, 2015

The Georgian Grizzlies men’s indoor soccer team were able to slide past some tough competition at the OCAA Regionals held at the Ontario Soccer Association Centre in Vaughan on Monday.

After dropping a tight opening round match to Fleming by a 1-0 score, Georgian needed big efforts the rest of the day to keep their provincial hopes alive.

They responded in a big way, first they dropped Conestoga by a 2-1 score with goals from Linas Katinas and Jorge Cantor and followed that by scoring three unanswered goals in the second half to defeat St. Lawrence – Cornwall by a 4-1 score. Linas Katinas continued his strong day with two goals in the final game while the Grizzlies also had goals from Victor Frohman and Mortaza Ahmadzai.

The Grizzlies 2-1 record was good enough for a three way tie in the pool along with Conestoga and Fleming. With the top two teams in the pool moving on to the provincials, Georgian were able to claim second place due to a goal differential tiebreaker.

The OCAA Championship takes place Mar. 20-21 hosted by Redeemer University College in Ancaster.

Grizzlies women’s volleyball season ends with loss to Niagara

Published on February 27, 2015

For the Georgian Grizzlies women’s volleyball team it was an abrupt end to a season filled with a ton of success.

After an upset loss at the hands of Durham in their opening match of the 2015 OCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship the Grizzlies set their sights on a possible bronze medal.

To do so they would need to defeat the Niagara Knights, who were another top seeded team upset in their first game, in the bronze quarter final match.

In the end it wasn’t the Grizzlies tournament as they fell 3-0 (26-24, 25-23 and 25-11) for the second straight game.

Fifth year veteran Hannah Campbell (Midland) earned player of the game honours, in what will be her final game for the Grizzlies, leading the team with 8 kills.

The Grizzlies will take away many of the positives from a season which saw the team win the east division with a 16-2 regular season record and build toward next season.
